An OVA released in 1990, Nineteen seems to have slipped into the vast abyss of overlooked anime.

Story

Well, with it's story alone, I don't think that Nineteen will win over too many fans. It is presented as a somewhat standard coming-of-age teenage love story the likes of which has been told many times through both live-action and animated film. It's nothing groundbreaking, but we are at least given a coherent plot with a proper climax and resolution.

Backgrounds are all very detailed and well done. It's fun to see all of the name brand products and familiar places that are included. There are also a read more

Rampant nudity? Superheroes? Nazis? The Big Toenail of Satan? If any of this sounds exciting, then Kekko Kamen is likely the series you've been waiting your whole life to see.

Story

Absurd is the first thing that comes to mind. Don't be fooled into thinking of this as a bad thing though. Kekko Kamen is the type of series that works because of its absurdity.

Story

The highlight of this manga is it's story. It's not necessarily completely unique in premise, but the way it treats its subject matter is what makes it stand out from the pack. Motoi Yoshida presents Koshiro and Nanoka's relationship in a realistic and powerful manner. Humor is also provided whenever appropriate.

Art

The character designs are all pleasant looking and very distinct from one another. Expressions are always drawn well enough that you can know how a character is feeling. The backgrounds don't show much detail for the most part, unless a scene is being introduced. Overall, the style is a bit simplistic, but this fits read more
